Description A group of children playing in the spray from a fire hydrant. In the background is a row of townhouses and the top story of several adjacent buildings has been destroyed, most likely burned. We see some structural elements still in place. Some windows of the townhouses are boarded up and there is debris piled up outside. The children are playing next to a parked car.
